Best Canon EOS 4000D or Rebel T100 DSLR camera settings or setup

The first thing to do, of course, is to install the battery. At the bottom of the camera is the battery door, which is also the door for the card. If you bought the camera from a registered dealer, then you received an original Canon battery. Other third party cameras are available but it is always better to use the correct Canon battery. With the Canon logo on one side, it has an arrow to help guide the way to insert the battery into the camera. The battery is designed to only go one way. So if you feel like you’re forcing the battery in, then it’s probably the wrong way to go.

The slot for the memory card is also located here. And like the battery socket, the card socket only accepts the card one way. I tend to use Sandisk memory cards, and many professional photographers I know tend to have a high regard for Sandisk. There are three reasons for this: first, they’re fairly durable cards, and second, they often give you file retrieval software if there’s a problem with the card. Finally, the card is guaranteed for life, which is really very useful. However, only the card is guaranteed, so if you have a lot of files or a lot of pictures on it and the card breaks or doesn’t work properly and the software can’t get it for you and you have to send it to Sandisk, all that Getting them back is a new card – you won’t get your pictures back. So you need a place to keep your files – your pictures and your videos – like an external hard drive or a computer.

To mount the lens, you need to match the white square on the lens and camera if it’s an EF-S lens, or the red dots if it’s an EF lens. Then turn clockwise. When changing lenses, always keep the camera pointing downwards to prevent dust and dirt from accidentally falling inside.

Now you can turn on the camera. There really isn’t an on switch, just an off switch. At this point, it’s a good idea to set the mode dial to M for manual, as it gives you the opportunity to see everything that’s available to you in the menus. You access the menus by pressing the menu button on the back of the camera, and you navigate through them using either the cross buttons here or the spin wheel on top of the Canon EOS 4000D. You confirm a selection by pressing the set button in the middle of the cross buttons.

The first option that appears when you turn on the camera is the option to change the time and date. You do this by using the cross keypad. The other option you might want to look at is also in setup menu 3 and is called Language. There are any number of languages ​​you can select and again use the cross keys to make your selection.

The next option is the image size and of course with a camera of this type you want a very good image size and image quality, as this is probably one of the reasons why you bought the camera. So if you go to capture menu 1 the top option is image quality and I would choose the quadrant and capital L as that represents the best image quality and compression quality.

Sometimes the LCD screen turns off automatically while working. This will help you save battery life but can be quite annoying. To turn the camera back on, press the Display button. To change this feature, go to the auto power off option located in setup menu 1. Here you can extend it up to 15 minutes or even disable it altogether, but I suggest extending it to 1 minute.

To prevent you from taking pictures without a memory card in the camera, there is a setting in Capture Menu 1 called Capture without card that should be disabled.

Just above that in the menu is the beep. Beep is the sound made by the camera when focusing. This can seem very useful, but after about five minutes it’s really quite annoying so I would turn it off.

The other thing you need to do is format the card. Go to Setup Menu 1. The third option below is Format Card. If you’ve just put a new card in your camera, you need to format it to ensure the card and camera are formatted correctly to work together. But you may also want to format the card after you have downloaded all your pictures or if there is a read/write problem with the card. But it’s also not a very good option for casual use, because if you format the card, you’ll lose everything on it – even pictures you think you protected.

Finally, I would go to setup menu 3 and look at the copyright information. This is where I would put my name. It’s a bit clumsy but I think it’s worth it because every picture or video you take will have your name on it as the copyright owner and probably more importantly if the camera is eventually stolen you can identify your camera because of it will contain your name. Thieves rarely go that far into the camera settings and these are the basic settings for the Canon EOS 4000D or Rebel T100.
